    Alleged CBS 'Child Molester' Plot Rocks Alaska Senate Race


    Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller's campaign claims it has audio proof of local reporters scheming about ways to connect the Republican nominee to "child molesters."

    The Miller campaign blasted out an e-mail overnight containing a transcript and audio recording of what it claimed were reporters at CBS affiliate KTVA discussing story ideas. The conversation, according to the Miller campaign, was recorded on spokesman Randy DeSoto's voicemail apparently by accident after an assignment editor with the station called him and mistakenly left his phone on instead of hanging up.

    "These folks are out there trying to create a story," Miller told Fox News.
    Video at the link. WND is also running with this one.

    It wouldn't be the first or even the second time CBS tried to fabricate a story - but I have to say that I'm less inclined to buy into this if WND is a source . . . .
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    They aren't the sole source; it's just up their alley. Fox is the source in the OP and Fox isn't going to use WND as their primary informant. ;)

    What is your brilliant analysis? Is Palin out to create a story? Are you saying she is a liar? Is Palin more suspect in your world than an already disgraced CBS?

    I went to the fox source . . . . Seems like they maybe have a case here - of course myself I'd wanna hear the unedited version of the message . . . .

    How shocking is this though, really?

    In light of all that has happened with the media in recent elections, how "rocked" is Alaska, really?

    To me, it just feels like what I've come to expect from the media.
